The 304 Squadron (Hastings) Air Training Corps have shown me a mock up of their projected new Squadron Badge which is intended to honour the men of the original Squadron and I think it does that very nicely.  The original Flying Bomb emblem was designed by one of the Squadron's fitters and won him a prize of £7, which was a small fortune in those days.
Although the badge was adopted it was never official but it was worn with pride and merited great honour by the time the Squadron was disbanded after the War.  It will be nice, and a fitting tribute, to see it revived.  Please let me know what you think.

The motto, which I translate as High Flying or Flying High, is also a fitting tribute to keep their memory alive for many years to come.
